Exclamation I need help guys...FAST! D:

Okay, so since I got my betta fish (about a month ago) I've been treating him for fin rot with a few different methods at a time. At first just salt baths, daily water changes, and bettafix. Did nothing. Then I tried Jungle Fungus Clear. Did nothing. Now about four days ago I began treating Caesar to Maracyn 2. Like all the others it didn't really get rid of the rot, just cleared up some holes and tears but left all the red and brown streaks and brown blotches. I figured I'd continue anyways since the box says it takes awhile to work.

Now here comes the bad stuff D:
This morning I noticed Caesar had some white stringy poo.
I think that's a sign of an internal parasite...yesno?
And now I just got home from work and I noticed my fish is acting very weird.
I've concluded that he cant see since he's swimming directly into the decor and sides of the tank. I tried feeding him (usually he jumps for his food!) and he ate a pellet....probably just by luck. He didn't eat the othere probably cuz he couldn't see.......His head is also quite pale.

I have no idea what to do! I don't plan on using anymore of the meds he's on right now...Please help my and my poor fish D;

I'm sorry about him. I have no idea what is wrong with him, I don't know that much yet. I hope you can find out more from more experienced users, good luck

Thank-you anyways.

He also just stays to the top of the tank...

It's too late now, but if he survives the night I'll give him a full tank change tomorrow morning xP

White stringy poo is a sign of internal parasites. It may also be nothing, not 100% of the time is that the case, it could be do to the antibiotics as well. Just like humans they mess with the digestive system.

It sounds like you are doing the right things, do you have any aeration in the tank? antibiotics remove alot of oxygen form the water.

Best of luck getting him healthy.
